The Virginia Folklife Program returns to the Richmond Folk Festival! On Saturday, October 8 and Sunday, October 9, visit the Folklife Area to see demonstrations by apprentices from the 2019-2020 and 2021-2022 class years—including several instrument makers and repairers. Enjoy a photo exhibit honoring the twentieth anniversary of the Apprenticeship Program and visit the stage for traditional music—from Virginia and beyond—presented by the Center for Cultural Vibrancy.

More details will be announced later this summer.
